Andrew's First Trip to the Dentist
Yup! Andrew's 4 and I finally convinced him to got to the dentist. Sorry no pictures, he hated it! He wouldn't sit in the chair, refused to open his mouth, wouldn't let them brush his teeth, NOTHING! Well, he did let them take pictures of his teeth, he wasn't very happy about it, but he did it. Then when the dentist came to count his teeth, he bit her!! I don't think he meant to hurt her, but he bit her. Then she wanted to 'paint' his teeth with vitamins and he kept asking why? We'd give him an answer and he'd say ok, then he'd be asked to open his mouth again and he'd ask why? It was a never ending battle and he had to be bribed, with a loopdy loop for his hot wheels, still he was hesitant. I wish I could say it was all worth it and he got out of there with no cavities, but no, he has cavities!!! I was surprised!!! So, he gets a special toothpaste in hopes of keeping them small and not having to pull them, she says they're not bad yet, that's a good thing. So they're going to keep and eye on them, we get to go back in 3 months. This should be fun.
